I used to use this app all the time back on XP but when I switched to vista, the calender would no longer "stick" to the desktop (pressing the show desktop button minimized the calendar as well as all the other windows). This was because the guys at microsoft essentially broke the method that every used to keep things like gadgets "stuck" to the desktop. I am starting to get the impression from the forum and changelogs that this might have been fixed. I am now using windows 7 (which is great, btw) and I am having the same problem as I did with vista (minimizing everything manually is the only way to get the calendar to show up "on the desktop"). This is in the requests portion because I don't know for sure if this was ever corrected in Vista. I do know that in windows 7 gadgets WILL stay "pinned" to the desktop for the new peek comand and for show desktop. This indicates that at least SOME functionality has been given returned since Vista. I am guessing that if we can "trick" 7 into thinking that OotD is a gadget or something, it will work perfectly.
